Re: Do you think SW The Clone Wars will beat The Dark Knight this week

^That's kinda hyperbole there. Star Wars has a fan base exponentially bigger than TMNT. The problem here is that the large majority of that already built in fan base doesn't give a crap about this movie. They're burnt out from the crap they've had to endure from the series. Also, Dark Knight is hardly Titanic. Yes, it's been amazingly successful, but it's not even close to Titanic's totals and won't come close either.

Personally, I doubt this new Star Wars crapfest will break 10 million for the weekend.

If you mean will it move TDK down then ye,s it's possible. If you mean that it will earn more than TDK did on its first weekend then no, it won't.

Still, I'm looking forward to it.

Tropic Thunder opens mid-week. Some theaters are even having midnight showings tonight, which granted, means nothing since I went to the midnight opening of Land of the Dead and only 20 people were there. I say Tropic Thunder will win the week.

Not a chance, but I'll still see it.

Re: Do you think SW The Clone Wars will beat The Dark Knight this week

Here are the box office estimates for Friday:

1. Tropic Thunder - $8.2 million
2. The Clone Wars - $6.25 million
3. The Dark Knight - $5 million

If The Clone Wars keeps that pace, it may actually beat The Dark Knight. Tropic Thunder, barring a huge drop, definitely will.

But...but...

...everyone was SO SURE that it couldn't!

I'm quite surprised that so many of you thought that a month-old movie could keep ahead of Clone Wars, but that's what most of the predictions were.

Oh well, maybe Sunday will be a total reversal and everyone will be proven correct.

And we were.

Weekend estimates are just in:

1. Tropic Thunder - $26 million
2. The Dark Knight - $16.79 million
3. The Clone Wars - $15.505 million

Everything went according to plan.

Re: Do you think SW The Clone Wars will beat The Dark Knight this week

I can't say how thrilled I am that The Dark Knight stayed ahead of Clone Wars. As I said in another thread, it was a double victory against Star Wars: first outranking it as the second highest grossing film of all time, and second by beating it at the box office for #2.

Way to go, Batman.

Re: Do you think SW The Clone Wars will beat The Dark Knight this week

This just in: in response to Tropic Thunder finally unseeding The Dark Knight as the top box office draw, Warner has hired for the next Batman movie -- Robert Downey, Jr. as Riddler, Jack Black as Penguin, Matthew McConaughey as Deadshot, Nick Nolte as Rupert Thorne, Tom Cruise as Hugo Strange and Ben Stiller as Mad Hatter.
